State health officials and statewide healthcare groups held a news conference this week urging people to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
Dr. David Basel with Avera Health said people have some misperceptions, including that they are immune if they have already had COVID-19.
Basel said they are concerned with the rise of infections in younger people.
Basel said that people are also still wrongly comparing COVID-19 to the flu.
More information on where to receive a COVID-19 vaccine can be found at covid.sd.gov.
